Some of golf’s best talents will be attending the AT&T Byron Nelson at the TPC Craig Ranch course in McKinney, Texas. The tournament is slated to kick off on Thursday, May 13 and conclude on Sunday, May 16. It is also the final stop on the PGA Tour ahead of next week’s 2021 PGA Championship.
Last year’s AT&T Byron Nelson was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the tournament returning to its regular time slot, golf fans are certainly thrilled that things are somewhat normal again.
Keeping that in mind, it’s not a secret that sports bettors love getting in on the golf action. Like most other PGA events, the AT&T Byron Nelson attracts its fair share of betting action. BetOnline has released odds on who’ll win the tournament and they’re currently favoring Bryson DeChambeau at +750.
DeChambeau has been having a great tour. He’s finished in the top-10 in over half of the 11 tournaments he’s competed in, including when he won the 2020 U.S. Open and 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational. DeChambeau recently tied for 9th-place at the Wells Fargo Championship last weekend, so he’s still playing some solid golf this far into the tour. Considering he has decent odds to win the PGA Championship next week (+1400), he’d like to have a strong showing at the AT&T Byron Nelson to gain some final momentum.

Rahm Another Favorite to Win
Jon Rahm has the second-best odds to win this week’s tournament at +800. It makes sense that he’d be one of the favorites in McKinney because he also has really good odds (+1200) to win the 2021 PGA Championship.
Rahm could use a serious rebound this week. After four top-10 finishes in a row, he failed to make the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship last weekend. It was also the first time that he’d been cut this tour.
Needless to say, the golf world knows that Rahm is better than this, as seen by his past performances this tour. However, he’s yet to compete at the AT&T Byron Nelson in the past, so it’ll be interesting to see how he does at the TPC Craig Ranch starting on Thursday.
AT&T Byron Nelson Odds: Koepka Remains a Long Shot
Out of the golfers with top-10 odds to win this week’s event, Brooks Koepka (+2500) is the only one who has previously finished high at the AT&T Byron Nelson. While he didn’t win, Koepka did come in second at the 2016 edition of the tournament, losing to Sergio Garcia in a playoff. It may not be as good as a victory, but it shows that Koepka does have experience, which could come in handy considering several golfers may be hitting the TPC Craig Ranch for the first time in their career.
However, Koepka has been having a rollercoaster of a season. After being cut three times in a row earlier this tour, he won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February and has the following finishes since then:
- The Genesis Invitational: T-38th
- WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession: T-2nd
- 2021 Masters Tournament: CUT
As you can see, there’s no telling of which Koepka we’ll see at the AT&T Byron Nelson this week. He hasn’t competed in a tournament in about a month, so it’ll be interesting to see how he kicks off Round 1 on Thursday.
